    Is my passenger seat normal?

    Just bought this car approved used. Are these metal bars supposed to be there.

    How much will is cost to sort out or will I be covered under the warranty?

    Thanks

    Not for a baby that's in a babyseat designed to protect them in an accident.

    i think it is only dangerous if the car seat is a rear facing one. Thius is due to the fact that airbag will crush the baby seat against the front seat.

    i think anyway :P
